By the 2360s, Patterson had achieved the rank of admiral and was in charge of Utopia Planitia. In that capacity, he hosted up the commissioning ceremony of the USS Enterprise-D in 2363, giving a speech and assisting Captain Thomas Halloway in giving Admiral Norah Satie, Admiral Gregory Quinn, and Lady Svaath Magodin a tour of the ship. Patterson was very enthusiastic about the new Enterprise, considering it to "lead the way in expanding our knowledge and understanding of the universe and -- most important -- ourselves". (TNG short story: "Meet with Triumph and Disaster")
Patterson also taught classes at the Academy; he was Kathryn Janeway's professor for calculus, becoming Janeway's mentor. He was still in charge of Utopia Planitia in 2371 when the USS Voyager was built; he escorted Janeway onto Voyager for the first time. (VOY episode: "Relativity")
